    Live Forum: The Abyss of Beauty

    Online, Zoom webinar

    Meet and

    Why do we shy from paying attention to nature’s beauty? In his essay “The Abyss of Beauty” in the Summer 2021 issue of Plough Quarterly, Ian Marcus Corbin tries walking in the park sans phone to experience something of what Gerard Manley Hopkins, Simone Weil, Adam Zagajewski, and Václav Havel found in nature that Herman Melville, Immanuel Kant, Albert Camus, and Christopher Hitchens didn’t.

    In this live online event, we invite readers to discuss Ian’s article with him and Plough contributing editor Brandon McGinley. Participants will have the opportunity to join the discussion and pose their questions directly to the speakers.

    Join us on June 15 at 8:00 PM EDT via Zoom webinar.
